A syncronisation problem…

March 22, 2006 | 2:12 pm

Hi all

Basically I have been working on this patch for a long time now, its working but I am having great problems synchronizing it to VST. The patch itself works on by taking a counter number 0-inf and using expression blocks, it manipulates the counter number using some kind of quadratic cubic function (although I may be wrong)

The purpose of it is to generate arpeggiator style note sequences in shapes and I’m happy to say it works. This was then intended on being used in cubase on some of my projects, im also doing a research piece on this looking at mathematical connections between music and math

The counter itself is triggered by a tempo box, my ideal situation would be to replace this box with something else that’s following VST host tempo, but not song position. Also I need to be able to use the beat multiplication and division variables as these allow me to speed up the whole thing extremely fast (as the midi sequence sounds really crazy when its speeded up and I like it lol).

Anyways, I will put up the whole patch as it stands, I would love to know a solution to this problem as im running out of time. Be nice, this is my very 1st patch so there will probably be may be many ways of improving it, feel free to let me know what you think tho…

The main thing is to be able to switch on the main tempo based counter at any time and have it sync with VST host

Just about to rush off to a boring meeting, so I
haven’t had time to check your patch out properly, but
I see no instance of plugphasor~ which is what I use
for all my Pluggo syncing.
Afaicr, it goes something like plugphasor~ > rate~
>delta~ > >~ .001 > edge~, which outputs a bang for
your clock; use the right inlet of rate~ to set the,
er rate.
If I still have the will to live after this meeting,
I’ll post an example ;-)
cheers
